    This will be my last Mock before the draft. Please let me know what you think. I really enjoy putting these togetehr, so I would love to hear all comments, positive and negative. This will only be a 1 rounder.

    1. 49ERS Aaron Rogers QB Cal
    49ers take a blue chip QB prospect to rebuild

    2. DOLPHINS Derrick Johnson OLB Texas
    Dolphins can pick up a RB in FA or via trade, so they take the best player in the draft.

    3. BROWNS : Alex Smith QB Utah
    The Browns need a QB for the future. Yes they signed some stop gapers, but not a potential face of the franchise.

    4. BEARS: Braylon Edwards
    Bears get a big target for grossman. Braylon will compliment newly signed Mushin very well.

    5. BUCCANEERS :Ronnie Brown RB Auburn
    I happen to think that Ced Benson is a better back, but with his combine, Ronnie Brown leap frogs Benson.

    6. TITANS: Trade 6 and next years 6th to TEXANS for 13 and 47, and next year’s 3rd rounder
    TEXANS Select: Mike Williams WR USC
    In a surprise move, the Texans jump up and take the best WR in the draft. Can you imagine a Texans team with Carr in the pocket looking downfield and seeing Mike Williams and Andre Johnson?!

    7. VIKINGS: Troy Williamson WR South Carolina
    They get their WR and a damn good one at that.

    8. CARDINALS: Cedric Benson RB Texas
    The Cards need a RB, and are ecstatic to pick up the best back in the draft: Ced Benson

    9. REDSKINS :Antrelle Rolle CB Miami (FL)
    They lost Smoot, but pick up the best CB in the draft. Not bad, Gibbs.

    10. LIONS :Shawne Merriman OLB-DE Maryland
    The Lions have spent the last couple of years building up a good receiving core. Now a big Defensive playmaker is just what the doctor ordered.

    11. COWBOYS: Marcus Spears DE L.S.U.
    Spears is the BPA and a good fit for the Cowboy D.

    12.: CHARGERS: Trade 12 to PANTHERS for 14 and 115
    PANTHERS Select Pac Man Jones CB/KR West Virginia
    Chargers jump up and piss off the Chiefs, who had hoped that Pac Man would fall a few spots.

    13. TITANS: Alex Barron OT Florida St
    The Titans have McNair’s replacement, a rb, and young talented wrs. They need a good strong O-lineman and they take possibly the best one available.

    14. CHARGERS: Trade 14 to NY Giants for Next year’s #1, and number 43
    New York Giants Select: Cadillac Williams RB Auburn
    The Giants get a stud rb to compliment Eli

    15. CHIEFS Carlos Rogers CB Auburn
    Lets face it, the Chiefs NEED D like nobody’s business. This is a great start of a key draft for KC.

    16. SAINTS: DeMarcus Ware, DE,
    Ware has been climbing on a number of boards and the Saints pick him. He will be a good pass rusher that the Saints could use.

    17. BENGALS Heath Miller TE Virginia
    Easily the best TE in the draft. Palmer is still coming along as a QB and with a deep threat like Chad Johnson and a sure handed short pass target in Miller, Palmer will make big leaps this season.

    18. VIKINGS: Thomas Davis, S, Georgia
    They were thinking Defense, and found a LB/S hybrid that will help their defense a lot.

    19. RAMS Jammal Brown OT Oklahoma
    This is a no brainier for STL. They need an offensive lineman like nobody’s business, and he is the best one available.

    20. COWBOYS Mark Clayton WR Oklahoma
    Dallas picks up the WR they wanted

    21. JAGUARS Dan Cody DE-OLB Oklahoma
    Jags take the best DE left and improve a really scary looking defense.

    22. RAVENS: Roddy White WR U.A.B.
    The Ravens end up being the lone man out, again. Last year they almost got TO, this year they almost got Clayton. So they take White and are pacified

    23. SEAHAWKS: Erasmus James DE Wisconsin
    When you are often injured but have a lot of talent, you drop, but you are still going in the first round.

    24. PACKERS David Pollack DE-OLB Georgia
    Some mocks have him going higher, so GB should be happy to get him.

    25. BRONCOS: Travis Johnson DT Florida St
    Hard to say what Denver should do, but it Travis is available, they should give him a good hard look.

    26. JETS: Khalif Barnes OT Washington
    They could use Oline help, and take the person some people consider the best OLman in the entire draft.

    27. FALCONS: Matt Jones QB/WR/TE Arkansas
    What can you say about this pick other then, he will spread the field for Vick. Oh, and the Falcons can now play the single wing offense: who knows who is the QB and who is the receiver!

    28. CHARGERS: Matt Roth DE Iowa
    The other “Matt” of the first round goes to the Chargers. Some people might be disappointed, but he is a good value pick here.

    29. COLTS: Justin Miller CB/KR Clemson
    Suddenly the AFC south is getting some big WRs (like the Texans!) so they get a CB to cover some of them

    30. STEELERS: Marlin Jackson CB – Michigan
    They have a glaring need at CB even if they sign Ty Law.

    31. EAGLES: Darryl Blackstock OLB Virginia
    They could use an OLB, and take the best one available.

    32. PATRIOTS: Brodney Poole S Oklahoma
    Pats always go BPA, and he is the BPA right here.

    TITANS Trade 6 and next years 6th to TEXANS for #13 and #47, and next year’s 3rd rounder

    CHARGERS: Trade 12 to PANTHERS for #14 and #115

    CHARGERS: Trade 14 to NY Giants for Next year’s #1 and #43

    I really hope we don't give the Titans more picks to help them reload quicker...IMO if DJ is gone, there is no way we trade up, especially if it's for Mike Williams, who Cass isn't very high on...I don't remember exactly what he said about him, but it was something along the lines of "future TE" if I remember correctly...

    i would not happy with m. williams at the 6 pick. i have been enamored with ced benson the whole off-season and would be thrilled if we could get him, whether that was a trade up or not.

    Word on the streets is that the 'Phins are going to take Alex Smith if they stay at 2...It may just be a ploy to get Tampa to trade up, though...

    I'll tell you strait up that Casserly will pass on Williams if he is there at 13. No way he trades for him. Casserly doesn't have Williams as very highly rated.

    I dunno... sort of a modern day football version of the Rockets "twin towers"
    of Olajuwon & Sampson. Its really an intriguing combination that would be impressive on the field together.

    Exactly. Think about this: the advantage in passing goes to the WRs right now. If we had a guy like Mike Williams on one side of the field, there would be no double covering of Andre. That will make the defense have to play both Mike and Andre in man to man, which is a major advantage for the taller, sure handed wrs. Also it would give Gafney more routes as a number three as well. Finally, it would give Dom Davis a lot of help becuase it will be impossible to stack the box agianst him. Mike Williams is a person who can help the entire offense, and would be an amazing pick up! :thumbup
